Carl Fletcher was disappointed, but not surprised by his sacking as League Two Plymouth boss following a 2-1 defeat to fellow strugglers Bristol Rovers. Fletcher became emotional after being asked if he had spoken to his players in the wake of his dismissal being announced.
He then admitted: "That was the hardest part. We have been though a lot together.
"I may be a young manager, but I'm not stupid. If you don't win games, you don't keep your job.
"I have a good relationship with the chairman and I'm sure he feels he has acted in the club's best interests.
"We have both been through hard times, him more recently and myself over four tough years as first a player and then manager.
"I'm disappointed and I don't know what the future holds. I need time to talk things over with my family because I am not sure it is worth all the hassle."
